Start Page

A terminal-inspired, clean, feature-rich, and customizable browser start page designed for geeks. Supports local, docker and online usage.


I created this project to align my browser's look and feel with my .dotfiles style. It allows you to quickly launch your favorite URLs in style. With a built-in editor, you can easily customize it to your liking.

Over time, I have received positive feedback from the r/unixporn community, which motivated me to further improve it.
